Podcast: What Week 1 analytics say about Ohio State-Penn State from College Football Nerds

We also discuss the mythical ‘bag of wins.’

NCAA Football: Penn State at Ohio State Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

On Land-Grant Holy Land In Conversation, we talk to people in and around Ohio State athletics, and the sporting world at large, to bring you a different insight and perspective to the teams, athletes, and university that you love.

In today’s episode I talk to Josh from College Football Nerds about what can be learned from a statistical standpoint from both Ohio State and Penn State’s very different season-opening games; how the weird, pandemic-altered schedules are impacting advanced analytics; and what Josh thinks will happen in Saturday’s primetime matchup between the Buckeyes and the Nits.

If you are unfamiliar with College Football Nerds, we have been including their computer model predictions in our game day “Tailgate” episodes since last season, and they put together great videos breaking down the biggest matchups every week from a statistical and analytical perspective.
